I LOVE video games. I always have, Im not the best but im also not the worst. Mario has always been a favorite of mine and I needed a pencil holder for my desk. So i decided to make one look like a warp pipe form the Mario games.

TOOLS & MATERIALS

  1. 2″ pvc pipe
  2. 2″ Couplings
  3. 2″ test end caps
  4. pvc glue
  5. paint
  6. miter saw

Step 1:

This project is super easy and cheap!

I used my miter saw to cut the pvc pipe to length. This could be done with a hand saw and you would propably get nicer edges.

The couplings are dangerous to cut on the miter saw. So i stuck it on the end of the pvc and either cut it flush to the pipe or left a bit of a gap.

Watch your fingers!


Step 2:

I used black pvc glue since i bought black pvc. My intention was to leave the inside black but then decided to paint the inside.

I spray painted the test caps black and covered them with the black glue.

Then I used a small amount of glue to attach the end cap to the pvc tube.

Once that was dry I then attached the coupling to the pipe with the glue and flushed them up by pushing them together on my work surface.


Step 3:

Make sure to spray on multiple light even coats so that the paint wont drip.


These came out looking pretty cool. I am going to make some more in the summer when its warmer so I get a better finish. Let me know in the comments if you liked this project or if you made one.
